An interesting discussion about how search engines work and the filtering that happens without you knowing it! What about diversity? 
As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.

Test your searching skills, trust me, they're probably not as good as you think! Challenge your class, it has points and everything!

This is a model I made to encourage cross-curricular writing, children used story bird to show that they understand how the Internet works.
